DIRECT MAIL MARKETING
There is nothing better than a story about a destination. Our full-color Travel Magazine is exactly that – a travel magazine with destination stories that also feature specials from some of the top cruise, land and tour suppliers. This high-quality 56-page magazine has a long shelf life in doctor’s offices and in your clients’ hands.
Then there is the Cruise issue and the Travel Redefined issue for deluxe and extremely upscale vacations.
All the magazines are coded to your website so your clients can enter a code from the magazine and get so much more information about your special travel offer.
Our alliance with Travelmakers and their partnership with Signature and our vendors gives you access to the most acclaimed and advanced marketing programs in the travel industry.
You can select to have your clients receive weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly promotions that fit only your client’s interests. For example, your client might like small cruise ships and bicycling. You can select an option where they receive information from our preferred vendors that fit that criteria.
Your client will also receive exclusive offers that will not be available on Expedia or other internet sites.
You can send automatic e-mail greeting to clients on major occasions.
E-mail Campaigns: Signature creates and executes weekly e-mail campaigns. Campaigns are sent only to clients that have indicated interest in that particular destination or type of travel. E-mails are customized with your own branding for each client. Opt in to Signature’s weekly campaign options or generate your own customized campaigns to your clients.
